Not all serve beyond...............

......their planned time on active military duty. But that is all the media will tell you about. Here's another side of the story:

BAGHDAD, Iraq, Dec. 7, 2004 ? The final round of Oregon National Guard soldiers who have reached their 24-month service cap for high operation tempo days will return home from Iraq soon. A law enacted by congress shortly after Sept. 11, 2001 limits a national guard or reserve soldier?s active-duty obligation to 24 months within a five-year time span.

The 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry sent home 60 soldiers of the 95 who qualified to return to the states. Thirty chose to stay in Iraq while another five were sent back for rehabilitation due to battle injuries.
